state. the q4000 is used to lift the blowout preventer. why are we using it? the reason we are doing it is because when it was brought and originally, it was to operate the manifold on the see that what -- seabed that allowed us to do this static -- excuse me, a dynamic attempt at the top killed. altman we did that by pumping mud and cement into that show client heard before that, we were having to kill the choke line with the q4000. it was never intended to be the primary lifting device. the reason we are using it is, on deck, it has the electrical connections and a computer that run the yellow pdod, which is the control pod that runs the hydraulic lines and vowels and operate the blowout preventer from the surface. we married the yellow pod with the q4000 at the start of the response. because of that, we are excepting some limitations on what they can do compared to what the "discover enterprise," can do. is the response of? >> yes. [unintelligible] do you see that as anything that might affect the response? >> i do not. >> thank you. >> i was wondering if you could talk about what

about most, the u.s. economy. he again accused republicans of standing in the way. >> we don't have time for anymore games. i understand there's an election coming up. but the american people didn't send us here to just think about our jobs, they sent us here to think about theirs. they sent us here to think about their lives and their children's lives and to be responsible. and to be serious about the challenges we face as a nation. that's what members of both parties have now done with this small business jobs bill. and i hope we can work together to do the same thing on middle class tax relief in the weeks to come. >> let's bring in our white house correspondent dan lothian. dan, the president, he came out, very forceful, saying, yes, there may be a deal on some tax breaks for businesses, small businesses, but there's a big battle brewing over tax rates overall for the american public? >> that's right, this is nothing new that we heard today in that sense because over the past couple of weeks, this is what the white house has been pushing very hard on and they have been going after re
of the politico. thanks so much. go statesman. that's "hardball." thanks for being with us. right notice time for "the ed show" with ed schultz. >>> good evening, americans and welcome to "the ed show." tonight, live from minneapolis, these stories on the table and hit my hot buttons at this hour. how about this, glenn beck's got a crush on republican governor chris christie, when christie's not bullying teachers he's trying to bully voters. i'll talk to a voter who sparred with christie in just a moment. >>> and speaking of beck, he's the one saying, violence is going to be coming from the left? well, a male sharron angle supporter tea partier reportedly punched a female harry reid supporter during a candidate forum last night. oh, yeah! radio talk show host heidi harris was there, and we'll get that story and get some rapid fire response. >>> and tea partier christine o'donnell, ben quail and demon sheep have one thing in common. details coming up in "the playbook" tonight and the congress's just done something really big in dealing with manipulation occurrencewe china. we'll have that stor

"wall street journal" nonfiction, number two. and the combined list of fiction and nonfiction books at "usa today" #28, moving up and not -- #30. why is is selling so well? guest: i think it is resonating. people in america are very scared about what is going on about the bankrupting spending the federal government is doing and the destruction of our liberties and the assaults of individual liberties and assaults on the states, the war against the state, how president o

. thanks for joining us. >> apparently i stole an irish phrase when i said top of the morning. >> how dare she steal top of the morning? i should give you the rights to say that. thank you, you have the right to say it. >> i should come up with a swedish phrase. >> for today call me patio furniture. that will be my nickname. >> how do we say fox news alert in irish? we have to begin with the headlines and fox news alert. u.s. and iraqi forces confirming that four suspected terrorists escaped from a prison in baghdad. all four men with ties to al-qaida were facing the death penalty. uh-oh! they're being held in the u.s.-controlled portion of tar kwu e prison, only one still under u.s. military control look at this video out of texas. those are cars peeking out of the floodwater. the remnants of tropical storm hermine, hermine, ok, being blamed for two deaths, unfortunately, there and forcing more than 100 high water rescues and some great video out of oklahoma where at least three tornadoes were reported. power lines knocked down because of the heavy winds and the rain there. four people a
'll read your-mails during mfrp news you can't use" on "morning joe" which starts right now. >>> i don't think health care is driving this election, david. i think economy is driving this election. people have anxiety about that economy. i'll tell you what -- >> then why did you do health care and spend so much of last year on health care? >> they don't want -- well, you know why we worked on health care? because health care was a huge -- is and was a huge problem in this country. >> yet democrats are not campaigning on it because it's so polically toxic. you said that wouldn't be the case. you said it would get more popular, not less. >> i think that health care overtime is going to become more popular. >>> welcome to "morning joe." happy monday. mika, that's what i keep thinking about myself. >> what this. >> that one day, one day i'm going to get more popular. my mom tells me. >> you're so popular. you're the most popular boy in school. >> no, my mom says i'm not because they're jealous of me. one day, like health care reform -- >> 21st century is only 10% over. >> that's right, tha
? >> luckily, we have cut the barnicle with some chris jansing and mr. dan senor is with us and margaret carlson, bloomberg news political columnist and washington editor of the week, good to have you with us. >> good to be with you. >> dan, you were in iraq within weeks of the invasion. >> vi day as you said to me earlier. i was underwhelmed by the speech. i thought it was lacking any context about where we go from here. i think the elephant in the room for many iraqis, and for many men and women in our military is will we go back? will we ever have to go back? how do we prevent ever going back? saying we're leaving and the end of it doesn't seem like sufficient. i think there are two scenarios for iraq. one is that it basically shrinks and becomes a glorified province of iran and gets swallowed up by iran or, two, we abandon the iraqis so much and they feel so alone that the only way they can defend themselves is they built an army of saddam proportions something of one former general said to me, a military that not only can play home games but can play away games, too. that is destabi
't ask, don't tell. he says "this is not a serious exercise. it's a show." luke russert joins us from capitol hill. where do we stand right now on getting the votes just to move the ball forward? >> reporter: all indications right now, contessa, the democrats will not have the necessary republican votes to break the filibuster on the defense reauthorization bill and hence the debite on it will not go forward. it willie happen after the midterm elections. this is something harry reid deeply wanted to move forward. obviously the don't ask, don't tell is something that excites a lot of democrats, definitely fires up you their base. a lot feel it's morally the right thing to do. that being said, republicans don't necessarily have an adversement to repealing don't ask, don't tell. they're averse to doing it in the manner you're talking about. a lot of republicans have the chance of amendments will not be offered in debate. harry reid would be limiting the amount of the amendments, that's what's alienated voters such as susan collins we heard from as well as owe lip pa snowe. it will be int
orzag and kristina romer. a u.s. army major accused of murdering 13 people at fort hood, connecticut man accused of trying to blow up times square. the secretary of homeland security will detail how home grown terror is harder to detect and more likely to succeed. janet napolitano will testify how the internet may be helping to increase radicalization here in the u.s. president obama arrives at the united nations today. traffic alert. tomorrow, he addresses the general assembly pushing for tough new sanctions against iran and north korea. much of that speech is apparently going to be a response to yesterday's comments by that guy, iranian president mahmoud ahmadinejad. he promised a war without end for countries that interfere with iran's goal. >> that's good. >> the site of the proposed mosque near ground zero now hosting weekly prayer services. hundreds of worshippers have been visiting the building despite safety hazards. "the new york post" reports that city inspectors have cited holes in the floor of the 152-year-old structure and there's no automatic sprinkler system in case a fir
's limited. use it to connect with local voters whom you'll be serving versus appeasing national media seeking your destruction. there are plenty of liberal media outlets that probably want letter to fail, but i want to make it clear, i'm not one of them. we're not trying to beat up on christine o'donnell. we also have questions about her opponent, chris coons. they're running for a seat in the u.s. senate. they should be ready and open to answering questions from all quarters. christine o'donnell wants to serve the people of delaware, not just those who agree with her, and it's our job to help voters make um their own minds. i'm not making a big deal out of 11-year-old witch craft comments or the stuff she said about touching yourself years ago, want to ask her specifics about checks she wrote, serious allegations from former aides and employees, people who ran her campaigns. there's one media outlet sarah palin told her she should use, fox news, and tonight o'donnell broke her silence on sean hannity's program in the last hour. remarkably, though, she was never asked during the 20-mi
to beat him, a tea party person who you brought us. >> i really did. i mean, kristin o'donnell was one of our most frequent guests on politically incorrect". people who may not remember it because they're too young or watching johnny carson or something, may not remember that we created people like ann coulter, laura ingram. i could go on with a number of -- >> how did you find them? >> we like to book, you know, i don't know. i drank a lot in those days, larry. we did like to book a lot of female conservatives. they were good press and good for the show. we loved kristin o'donnell. you cannot not like her. she is such a nice person. we have great clip of ben affleck on that show saying please, christine, shut up. because i guess she would just go on. she was known back then as the girl from salt, salt being the saviors alliance for lifting the truth and i guess that's still the schtick she's playing. so part of me for sentimental reasons is rooting for kristin in delaware. the other part is rooting for her because she's going to get her christian ass kicked in the general election. th
all of us and we hated him. again, it was so ugly. but, i always think -- you talk about james madison's vision for how it's supposed to work. even when you have people going like this, or maybe because you have people going like this, balanced the budget four years in a row, first time since the 1920s. welfare reform, two successful military campaigns, 22 million new jobs. a lot of different things. so yesterday the idea of the interview was we were going to figure out if bill clinton were president, what would he do to get this economy started? i would suggest the most important thing to talk about and, of course, he didn't disappoint, did he? >> no, he didn't. >> brilliant responses. and yet the rest of the day we were savaged. i was savaged with why didn't you bring up monica? why didn't you bring up impeachment. and then the left, why were you so critical of barack obama? which i wasn't. but does this none, jon meacham suggest what's wrong with this country? everybody, all the adults at least are focussed on how do we get the economy started again. how do we grow jobs. these harsh
word. >> one we should all use today. >> like turning starbucks products into gold. >> or sand. >> i think it is. another great story from the west coast we will be talking about in a little bit. bill clinton, somehow managing to get right smack-dab in the middle of that california gubernatorial campaign. he's not even trying. this guy, jerry brown and bill clinton, these guys just hate each other and impacting that race. >> here's my guess, although bill clinton is now in the middle of that race spiritually, my guess is physically, corporately, he may not be at jerry brown's side campaigning on his behalf before november 2nd. >> jerry brown, i forgot this, he refused to endorse bill clinton in 1992, after clinton had locked down the nomination. >> it's true. >> jerry brown, the first guy to bring up whitewater. jerry brown, a guy that bill clinton, just to set the back story, remember the '92 debate, where clinton gets read -- how dare you attack my wife? before we get to the news. >> it's primary day -- >> hold on. i got you guys some gifts, really quickly. >> oh. >> tuscaloosa. th
meetings, town hall meetings and a lady asked a couple of tough questions. one was tell us about your faith. the other was will you eat one of my husband's red hot chilli peppers. >> i think he's been trying to do what we've been talking about which is connect and on different levels where there are questions, he's going there. that connection with the woman on the economy the other day, still sort of reverberates today because it was a seminal moment for this president and this country in terms of how people feel. he's putting himself out there. i commend him for it. i think it's hard for him. >> i think it's very hard for him. you can tell with him answering that question. >> i read the "times" story. as a guy who grew up in a southern baptist church. my parents took me there in the morning. they made me go to training union at night even when the super bowl was on. we were there wednesday night. we were there friday night. i grew up in an evangelical culture. i see you smirking wondering what happened to me. so i look through that statement, and when he says things like, jesus died for m
if they can find a job, and save that space for hardnd criminals that put us at risk. we cannot afford to how's these people. i mean, actually some of them live better than our poor. so i hope this is a turn and i hope other states will take this on. and i really love c-span. it's so important these days. thank you so much. host: thanks for the phone call. we'll keep talking about this. but first, we want to get a quick update about the afghanistan elections. joining us on the phone is paul tate, with reuters and the afghanistan bureau chief. mr. tate, if you could tell us about the headlines that we're seing in this morning. here's one of them. afghan vote marred by irregularities. guest: good morning. it's certainly true there have been thousands of irregularities, we're told, even before voting began. thousands of voter registration cards, ink that was meant to identify people as having voted could be washed off. we even found some kids with bottles of bleach standing outside polling stations showing voters how to wash the ink off. the counting will take a very, very long time. so we're no
